June Education Meeting

We had a open, invigorated discussion on Monday June 2 after viewing CBS News’ “60 Minutes’ “Nowhere to Go: Mentally Ill Youth in Crisis”. We’d like to have more of you involved in our free monthly Education Meetings to help transfer news about important education on mental illness. We need your help to end the stigma.

Let us know what subjects would interest you most for these 1 to 1.5-hour classes. Tell us about what’ll get you out  of the house after a long day of work and into a community of mental health advocates and people who care!
